So long 2018, Helloooo 2019!

Hello Art Fans and 2019!
Ushering in a new Year always leaves me wondering where the Old Year went so fast. You blink and it's over and you are left thinking about all the things you didn't get to do. Well I am not going to dwell on the things I didn't do, I'm going to use this blog to appreciate all the things I actually got done this past year.
As always I created alot of my little Steampunk and Animal Pals.
 Some of the same critters I have done before...still adorable though. :)

 But also some new creatures, this was my first time sculpting a Pegasus, and Purrmaids to Welcome Mermay.

I also took some of the animals I have made in the past and put a new spin on them, like with the shell designs on this turtle. How about some sweet White Flying Foxes to change things up?

I celebrated 10 years of Dragon Con! A decade of being a part of the largest Sci-Fi/Fantasy Convention in the South-East.

I won my 7th award at this year's Dragon Con Art Show. 
I created some fun pieces for my 10th Dragon Con. One of which was my largest sculpture to date.
This Sea Dragon is 10 inches from tip to tip and took over 100 hours to complete.
Making Little Red's Mask was a fun adventure.
I used techniques that I had never tried before. 
Blew the Gryphon is probably my favorite piece from this year.
He has a unique personality that just makes you want to play with this little guy. 

I worked on more commissions than I have in previous years and have tripled in Followers on all of my social media sites. All the love and attention from my fans has made this year one of my best yet.
I finished the Year with my 6th annual Christmas Myxie Ornament.
I enjoyed several interviews and my art was featured in a few blogs this past year.
It was a fun exciting 2018 and I can't wait to see what 2019 brings. I hope you all had a Wonderful Year and an Amazing New Year!

Thanks for reading Everyone!

It's the Poinsettia I'm trying to Make here... :D

Hello Art Fans!
Another Year has flown by already and it's that wonderful time again. Time for another Christmas Myxie Ornament! I have been making these beautiful Myxie ornaments since 2013 and I don't plan to stop the tradition in 2018 :)

The theme for this one was Poinsettia, my favorite Christmas Flower. I couldn't be happier with how she turned out.
So since I have spent several years walking my readers through my sculpting techniques and we all gotta get back to our Christmas shopping, I am going to walk you through this one fast, using mostly images. Cause I know you all just wanna see Pictures anyway LOL You'll be able to keep up I'm sure. :)
Sculpt Polymerclay around a wire frame. 

Add legs and arms. 

Make a face :)

Sculpt neck , hands and ears, then bake. 

Paint the Face and Body. 

Make a cute Festive Outfit. 

Add Doll Hair, I used long brunette curls for this classy lady. 

All Done, lots of angles.
If you would like to learn more on how to make a Myxie Sculpture, feel free to read my past Christmas Ornament Blogs. These blogs take you step by step through my process.

Hope you all have a super Happy Holiday and New year!

Thankful for You.

Hello Art Fans!
As it is getting very close to the Thanksgiving Holiday, I wanted to take the time to mention one of the things that I am thankful customers. Without you all I wouldn't be able to do what I do every day.
And a big part of how you help my business grow is by leaving reviews for my work. Your reviews help other customers find and make decisions regarding my shop.  Reviews also help me to know if I am doing a good job providing services or if/where I need to make improvements. Your thoughts and comments help me adjust my work or shop to get the most out of my business.
Here are a few of my most recent reviews. I just want to say how awesome it was to read these and to know that I made someone's experience a good one.
This review really tugged at my heart strings. :)
I love this little guy so much! My university mascot is a bear and I'm actually an amputee, so when I saw him I had to have him. He's beautifully made and shipped very quickly. I definitely plan to buy more sculptures from MysticReflections in the future!

The fabulous platypus has arrived safely, he’s perfect and astonishing of details. Contacts are simple and clear, you can with no problem buy magic objects from this shop. Thank you so much for your talent
Absolutely amazing. Stunning. I am tickled by this beautiful piece of art and I will treasure it forever. I'll be back to build my collection.
To read more of the reviews on my shop and merchandise or to leave a review, Please visit my Etsy review page. :) 
I appreciate all the feedback and Love that you all show my work. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Thanks for reading!

Round 2 of Then and Now Polymer Clay Creations!

Sorry it has been a little bit since I blogged last. The Dragon Con Art Show in September takes alot out of me and then my work usually increases due to the loads of custom requests I get swamped with afterwards. Not complaining, I love the work but it leaves very little time to blog and since most of the commission requests I am currently working on are for Holiday gifts, I can't post my progress.
But I can post my sculpting Progress over the years. I like to encourage artists to never stop trying. Practice really does make perfect but improvement comes slowly sometimes and can be discouraging. But don't give up fellow artists.
Here are some of my Then and Now sculptures that I hope will help motivate and inspire. :)

I hope you all enjoyed my throw back photos. Here's another blog of my Then and Now Progress pieces if you need more encouraging.
